to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so we would eventually become greece or cyprus if the u.s. dollar collapses and people stop lending us money. some conservatives believe that's exactly what the far left wants. a collapse of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans continue to elect them. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from lower manhattan dr. marc lamont hill who teaches at columbia university. do you think the program the caucus is putting forth will ever happen in this country? >> no. i think that's a template for a kind a progress
-conditioning in iraq and afghanistan. >> in 2002, richard pearl, chairman of the defense policy board said we are not talking about a massive ip vags along the lines of '91. we're talking about a much more modest effort in which the united states would assist iraqis in freeing their country. let me get over to paul about the manpower and loss of lives. and the world you live with. 31,000 wounded. about 600 amputees. give me a sense of your own personal experience with what the personal cost of this war was. besides the loss of 4,000 american service people? >> we didn't see too many of those air conditioners. when i was in iraq, i lost friends. we lost colleagues. we saw a lot of carnage and destruction. and i think the real untold story is the price we're going to pay for generations to come. a million veterans, including myself, served in iraq and are now home. and we all know that there was a real shortage of planning on the ground in iraq. they didn't have enough interpreters. didn't have enough body armor. didn't have enough humvees. there's a shortage now on the home front as veterans a
was shown an area displaying israeli air defenses including the so-called iron dome. then the motorcade saided to jerusalem where the pred will have a little down time before meetings today. our own chuck todd is in jerusalem. he joins me now. chuck, looks like to be a rather pleasant day at least weather-wise. what is going on in the holy land? >> well, mr. russert, it is unbelievable weather here greeting the president. pretty much a perfect spring day, if you will here in the holy land. what was interesting is the first thing the president said as he got off and there were microphones everywhere, i don't think he knew he was on, he said it's good to be away from congress. also that chitchat as making his way through shaking hands with various dignitaries, he and netanyahu were heard joking about difficulties in the budget process that both leaders are having in each of their countries. but, look, this event, you set it up well. this trip is heavy on symbolism, going to be somewhat light on substance as far as what, you know, what is he going to take away? what are the take aways? the
,000 wounded. the defense department reports $32 billion has been spent since 2003. tom cotton served as a platoon leader. as a fiscal conservative i asked if it was right to take the country to war without asking the americans to shoulder more of the financial burden. >> the american people have paid a great price for the ishlgs rack w iraq war. many more who served and the toll it took on their families. today is the day we should remember their sacrifices and they deposed a dictator and freed 30 million arabs and set up a way. national security is the first priority of the u.s. government, i think the war was worth it. we have to preserve the gains we achieved over the last ten years and beyond, but i think the war is worth it. >> do you think the war is to blame for the deficits we see these days? >> no. it's really not. if you look at where defense spending is today either as a percentage of the economy or budget, it's below post-war norms. under the president's budget it will fall more rapidly. the main cause that we saw today of the explosive growth in spending over ten years,
defense system that the u.s. helped pay for. the two leaders are now huddled tess prime minister's house, where in an hour they will hold a joint news conference. >> i'm so sorry michelle couldn't come this time. she actually wanted to, and i think she had some conflicts. >> but first incog knitto, the prime minister tells the president how can he can really sightsee. >> if you have a few free minutes and can slip away from your security, a daunting task, well, we've picked up a few cafes and bars in tel aviv, and we've even prepared a fake mistausche for you. >> good day, live in jerusalem, where we are happy to, as always, be on our partner israel's hot tv. in less than an hour there will be that joint news conference. they have long disagreed on the so-called red lines, the point where iran is so close to getting a nuclear weapon it should be 'tacked preemptively, as the president was giving a guided tour of the iron dome, mr. obama made light of their dispute over red lines. >> where do you want to start in. >> we're following the red line, sir. >> the red lines are -- >> he's always
, they want to cut the budget deficits and cut defense spending and simplify the tax code and lower tax rates. in a deal with president obama they could get the first four, more deficit reduction, protect defense, the democratic president would get some cover in cutting medicare and social security and they could simplify the tax code by taking out expenditures. they are now saying they want none of those things and also not going to get the tax rates and keep the sequester and not have a deal. i've asked a lot of them to walk me through the reasoning here and honestly never come to an answer i understand a little bit. >> does that mean they're post policy. even some things that seem like constants don't actually a matter them, it's pure politics, just positioning themselves vis-a-vis the president and not interested in a particular outcome for the country? >> i would like to have an answer where that isn't true. i really would. i've been trying to find it. i'm sure part is i'm not smart enough to do so or found the right people to have spoken to them. it's hard to come up with one. we can go
an iron dome defense system to protect israelis from rockets coming out of hamas or southern lebanon. so they're in lock step on a number of key issues there have been these dust ups along the way. but i think those are the exception to the rule, which is a very functional u.s./israel relationship. >> are we at a stage now, aaron, where there is no longer as much pressure regionally to do something about the israeli/palestinian negotiations because there is so much of a crisis atmosphere given what's happening on the border of all of these countries, the relationship with egypt, the morsi government, the war in syria and the revolutions and the arab spring have created a completely new context. >> it's very true, the region is as broken, angry and dysfunctional as i've ever seen it. most of it is not the fault of this president. but the reality is this israeli/palestinian issue still resonates. it's the one issue that emotionally, ideologically, politically, still unite as dysfunctional and divided arab world. the problem the president has, i'll sum it up very clearly -- the two-state so
people. they called it an act of self-defense but for nearly three years, israel and turkey, two of america's closest allies, have been in a war of words. that is, until today. in an unexpected move of sheer diplomacy, the president orchestrated a ten-minute phone call on the tarmac in tel-aviv. israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu called turkey's prime minister and apologized for that deadly raid, apologized for nine deaths and vowed to pay their family. at one point mr. obama, just before leaving for jordan, got on the phone with both leaders and they spoke. one senior american official said, this is obama diplomacy at work. the leaders agreed to restore normal relations. so that is real, tangible success and it shows the success of the trip. but then there are symbolic successes. today he went to former israeli prim minister's grave. he was assassinated by an extremist. as is customary in a jewish tradition, he placed a stone on the grave but this stone had powerful symbolism. it came from the martin luther king memorial in washington. the president, connecting one civil r
nobody was a bigger hawk than richard perle, a real intellectual, a member of the pentagon's defense policy board. he repeatedly asserted that saddam hussein had ties to osama bin laden and was feverishly working to acquire a nuclear bomb and he promised, richard perle did, that the war would be over in a matter of months. this week he was asked a very important question. i think it's a good question. his nonanswer is informative. let's listen. >> ten years later, nearly 5,000 american troops dead, thousands more with wounds, hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or wounded, when you think about this, was it worth it? >> i've got to say i think that is not a reasonable question. what we did at the time was done in the belief that it was necessary to protect this nation. you can't, a decade later go back and say we shouldn't have done that. >> so don't ask whether he should have gone in or not. another unrepentant war hawk. he was deputy secretary of the defense at the time of the invasion and here's what he wrote on fox news' website this week. as a strictly military matter if the war

, that is a u.s.-funded missile defense system that was very successful during the gaza war, something the israelis want to show off and they feel shows u.s.-israeli military cooperation and shows the united states a little bit of what it gets for its $3 billion in aid here to israel. the president obviously is meeting with leaders while he's here. he's also speaking directly to the israeli people who do not have a great approval rating for him. a recent poll in israel showed only 10% of israelis said they liked president obama. about another 30% said they didn't necessarily like him but they at least respected him. in this speech he is going to give to about 1,000 college students is designed to speak directly to the israeli population to see if he can't convince the israeli population that he's right that america has their back, and perhaps that can get more movement out of prime minister netanyahu if president obama is able to rally support from the israeli people themselves. >>brian: here's the unscripted part. the story yesterday about syria possibly using poisonous gas, poisonous

visited with a top american, which was chuck hagel, of course, defense secretary. kerry has such a good relationship, he's going to try to smooth things over. they think they can get past all of the difficulties with karzai. and they've got a lot of big issues. they've got the transition, political transition to talk about. they've got the obvious transition of a downsizing of the forces and eventually after 2014, figuring out what kind of security agreement there will be with afghanistan. as you've heard, the turnover of the prison today is a big deal, and the americans have been guaranteed that the most dangerous prisoners will not be released. that remains to be seen. but there are a lot of issues. this is, of course, a trip which has already taken kerry to the middle east, working on the israeli palestinian issue in support of president obama. and then trying to help broker that turkish/israeli agreement to restart their relations. and then, of course, his trip to jordan and then the unannounced secret trip to baghdad only yesterday, where he was really chiding and warning prime min
telling them what food to eat. they shiure don't want him tellg them what defense firearms to own. he can't buy america. >> right. of course, the nra never tries to use its financial resources to influence opinions. wayne lapierre seems to forget mayor bloomberg doesn't need to buy public opinion on this issue because the majority of americans agree with him. between 85% and 91% of americans support universal background checks in recent polls. that includes 85% of gun owners. so more than 100 days after newtown, why is so much political courage needed to simply stand up for the will of the people? for more on this, i want to bring in our panel with us from dallas, conservative strategist stelia bigalow, here in new york, mr. martin, a survivor of the aurora theater. you have 85% to 91% of americans supporting universal background checks. that includes 85% of gun owners. yet wayne lapierre says the whole thing is a hoax, it's about taking away or confisca confiscating your guns. to you really agree with that? >> what i think needs to be done is we need to strength the system we already hav
is a common pastime of republican politicians who attacked this president's choice for secretary of defense as somehow being an enemy of israel. it is a common past time for fox news commentators and other right wing pundits. they would have shouted down this president for saying what he was about to say, and they would have claimed that their shouting was all in defense and support of the people of israel. the president chose today to speak directly to the people of israel, including that heckler, about the hopes and dreams and, yes, the rights and fair expectations of the palestinian people. and not only did he not get booed for that, he was cheered for speaking to the israeli people about the palestinian people. the strongest cheers he got in his speech today surely much to the discomfort of benjamin netanyahu, were all for his vision of the future for israelis and for the palestinian people. >> given the demographics west of the jordan river, the only way for israel to endure and thrive as a jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable palestine. t
to shape the debates of our time, not only with the votes we cast but with the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideas. >> he talked about us shaping the debate. is that resonating, angela? >> i think it is resonating. there's a natural, organic evolution. the constitution was written years ago and most of us see the constitution as a living, breathing document. there are all types of things that we can do to ensure that we are creating change long term. the president has continued to push that. we saw her even do that across the ocean in israel. so when you look at the different things we can do as a people, it isn't just about the vote. it is also about the voice and for republicans, more often than not. >> support of gay marriage, as you mention, currently 58%, that's up 26 points since 2004 and 81% approval rating among those 18 to 29. now, your father came out in support of same sex civil unions back in 2009. why has the party, in your opinion? >> i think there's a conservative right movement as we've seen take over the party in the last few years and

supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he has to persuade prime minister netanyahu, that in fact he is not bluffing, that the u.s. would take military action if needed and israel presumably would prefer to have the u.s. with them this he can't really do it as easily alone. they're going to try to get closer on the same timeline on iran. and of course there
secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. and so i think going forward, particularly with the saber rattling with iran and what's being talked about with north korea and its belligerence, the american people are going to be very cautious. i should say more cautious than they were in 2003 about supporting another war being waged by the united states. >> our power panel today jonathan capehart, margie o'mara, chip saltsman, thank you all very much. stay with msnbc for continuing coverage of the president's trip to the middle east. >>> coming up next congress works to avoid a government shutdown but no matter what they do voters are giving them a thumbs down. we'll be joined by congresswoman blackburn next. plus, sentencing day for a teen who went on a kil

unrepentant war hawk was deputy secretary of defense. here is what he wrote on fox news website. as a strictly military matter if the war in iraq ended when we got to baghdad, it would have been counted an historic victory. the war went sour after the occupation began. if only someone had thought about that, what would happen after we invaded. back in 2003 he didn't seem too concerned about that. take a listen. >> there's been a good deal of comments, some of it quite outlandish about what our post war requirements might be in iraq. some of the higher end predictions we've been hearing recently, such as the notion it will take several hundred thousand u.s. troops to provide stability in post-saddam iraq are wildly off the mark. first, it's hard to concede that it would take more forces in post-saddam iraq than to conduct the war itself and to secure the surrender of saddam's security forces and his army. hard to imagine. >> ron, i never mastered the ability to speak as if every word of opinion i offer is a fact that has already been received. it's done and there's been a verdict cast. these ne
